July, 2020

I am delighted and honored to be starting my term as President of the Sarasota Chapter of the Brandeis National Committee.

When I retired in 2012 I knew I wanted to do something productive with my time. Soon thereafter I attended a BNC Open Meeting, received a copy of the Handbook, paid my dues and Study Group fees, and the rest is history.

I was quickly hooked on the fabulous selection of programs, tours, speakers, etc. On top of that I have met vibrant, active, like- minded women and men who want to learn, listen, evolve, and engage.

It’s 8 years later and our array of programs for this season is still as educational, diverse, and exciting. The only difference is that in order to keep our membership safe, due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are offering almost everything via “Zoom”. Because this has reduced our expenses, (no need to rent rooms for meetings) this season there are no additional fees for Study Groups and Special Events.

What a wonderful opportunity to invite your friends, neighbors and family (near and far) to join our BNC Chapter. We are learning and interacting together while practicing social distancing !

I hope you and your loved ones are staying safe in this challenging time.

Looking forward to seeing you soon on “Zoom”

Linda
